A process in which 3D System Design Software is used to design and analyze the construction of a complex building system (e.g. form work, glazing, tie-backs, etc.) in order to increase planning.

Potential Value:
  • Increase constructability of a complex project
  • Increase construction productivity
  • Increase safety awareness of a complex building system
  • Decrease language barriers
Resources Required:
  • 3D System design software
Team Competencies Required:
  • Ability to manipulate, navigate, and review 3D model
  • Ability to make appropriate construction decisions using a 3D System Design Software
  • Knowledge of typical and appropriate construction practices for each component
